VULAVIA, birds that FLY AWAY (this is the translation from our Piedmontese dialect) in a free sky, the blue and clean one that fills our eyes and our hearts here at Agricola Colle Belvedere almost all the year long.
“Perfumed, in a delicate, haunting way. Then deeply earthy: mushrooms, sous bois, tart cherry and truffle. Flavours entwined with tannins that feel gossamer fine but there are so many of them that they cling to the fruit like a film of fine chalk dust.
Tamarind on the finish. Determined but elegant. A slender, long-necked wine with a set jaw”
